The House at 23 Avon Street in Wakefield, Massachusetts is an Italianate house in the town. It is a 2 12-story wood-frame structure with a T-shaped plan. It has wide eaves with paired corner brackets, an Italianate hallmark, and windows with corniced lintels and footed sills. Avon Street was laid out in 1848 on the former estate of Lemuel Sweetser, a local shoe manufacturer. This house was built about 1855, and is one of the finer examples of high-style Italianate architecture in the town.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
